In the clue about the Sistine Chapel, we asked, "In what '80s was the Sistine Chapel completed?" Construction of the chapel was completed in the 1480s. However, the lyrics in the clue reference the frescoes within the chapel, focusing on Michelangelo's famous work on the ceiling. While some of the chapel's frescoes were completed in the 1480s, Michelangelo did not paint the ceiling until the 1500s.
